WHO"S GOREY NOW? OF CORSET!

The Edwardian Ball is noi in honor of King Edward VII but rather inspired by the art and writings of Edward Gorey. The event started in costume-crazed San Francisco, where it runs for three days, and is making its L.A. debut. I will be coming as one of Gorey's many pseudonyms, Madame Goreda Weyrd, Performers and show-offs include Cirque berzerk, Rosin Coven, Vau De Vire Society, Helios Jibe. Yes, there will be an absinthe bar, plus a portrait studio, ballroom dancing and much more.
